Publisher's presentation :
"This book presents selections from Guy Tillim’s most influential works and series of the last decade, including “Mai Mai militia in training,” “Jo’burg,” “Avenue Patrice Lumumba,” and “Second Nature.”
Anchored in photojournalism but working against the grain of spectacle, Tillim portrays the communities, social landscapes and symbolic structures of societies altered by conflict.
From explorations of modernist architecture—and its utopian ruins—in post-colonial Angola, Congo and Mozambique, to the homes and private lives of Johannesburg’s inner-city residents, Tillim’s work raises timely questions about the politics and representation of the built environment."

Presentation by Steidl: " « In Dr. Blankman's New York, I hope you'll find a persuasive account of what it meant for me to be free with a Leica in the streets of my then newly-adopted home of Manhattan, a record drawn in the saturated colors of Kodachrome film, where even the heavy shadows pouring into the backdrop-avenues of the pictures seem full of...
